Filed under: Georgian,Recipes — multiculturalfamilyrecipes @ 10:35 pm

Ingredients:

  •  1 onions, diced
  •  1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  •  2 cups all-purpose flour
  •  1/8 teaspoon salt
  •  1 egg, beaten
  •  1/2 cup cold water, or as needed
  •  Oil

Directions:

To Make Meat Mixture: Heat 4 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook onions, beef and add salt and pepper. Cook for 15-20 minutes and break down meat with fork. 5 minutes before removing from heat add cilantro and parsley and mix the ingredients. After removing from heat put in a container and put it in the refrigerator because the meat needs to be cold before adding to the dough.

To Make Dough: In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt and egg and mix well. Stir in water, a little bit at a time, until dough is stiff. Knead dough for 2 to 4 minutes on a lightly floured surface. Roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness with a rolling pin. With a glass or cookie cutter, cut out rounds about 3 inches in diameter.

Add a teaspoon of meat to each round dough and put one side on other and press down on edges to seal and lightly roll in hands.

In a skillet add enough oil to fry.

Fry the peroshkis make sure to turn it often so the sides dont burn. When dough is cooked remove from heat and serve.

Story:

My favorite snack, I remeber growing up every friday we would have dinner as a family with my grandparents and my grandmother would bring peroshkis out on a beautiful silver tray and once me and my cousins put our hands on it, it would be gone in seconds. It brings back some speciel memories!
